The Ticket Office description

Holiday home
The Ticket Office is a quirky, semi-detached cottage, the former railway station for the hamlet of Torver, just 2.5 miles from Coniston and can sleep two people. This all ground floor cottage has a double bedroom, a bathroom, a kitchen, a sitting room with dining area and a shared utility. Outside there is off road parking for one car and shared gardens with furniture. The Ticket Office is a wonderful holiday base.

Nestling at the head of Coniston Water, the pretty village of Coniston is surrounded by some of the most beautiful scenery in the Lake District National Park and makes a superb base for touring, with Hawkshead, Ambleside and Windermere just a short drive away. Superb walking, mountain biking and climbing is available locally on Coniston Old Man and Wetherlam, and the lovely woodland trails at Grizedale Forest. For water sports enthusiasts the quiet lake is ideal for dinghy sailing and canoeing, whilst the less active can enjoy a leisure cruise on the beautiful steam yacht 'Gondola'.

Impressive mountains, open fells and clear-water lakes, the Lake District has it all. From walking in the mountains to exhilarating watersports or just a gentle cruise on a steam-powered yacht, Cumbria is the perfect holiday destination.

My husband and I have just spent the week here with our Dog Daisy and have had a great time for the second year in a row. The Ticket Office is in the perfect location next to the Church House Inn and you can walk the 3 or so Miles into Coniston without having to use the main road. The property shares a lovely garden with the neighbouring cottage and garden furniture is provided to enjoy the sun, the wildlife and on a clear night the magnificent sky. The cottage consists of a large bedroom, sitting room, bathroom and a small but very well equipped kitchen. The village of Torver is lovely and a great location for exploring Coniston and you can also climb the Old Man of Coniston almost from the door, a walk that we did and thoroughly enjoyed. We plan to return for a third visit next year.

It was a cosy cottage ideally situated for touring the Lakes.

The cottage is in a superb location and has lots of character. The garden was lovely and very well looked after. Torver is one of the best villages we have ever stayed in at the lakes and is a good base for exploring the whole area.

It was very relaxing, in beautiful countryside and a wonderful cottage full of character.
